    I need some advice on what to buy for next season. I have a plowing business and would like to add lawn service to my customers. I don't want to get too big because I already have a steady job. The lawn service would be just a way to make extra money after school hours and then do it full time in the summer. I won't do designs or anything, just cut grass and clean up leaves in the fall.

    Now that I laid out my goals, what kind of equipment should I buy? I need to buy a commercial mower, but what are good ones to look at and others to walk away from? I am probably buying a trailer within a week or so and I know I need to buy an edger and blower. Do I need anything else?

    Sorry for the long post, but I figured I should be thorough in order to get accurate responses. Thank you in advance.
